Kumar's Story

Why adopt only one cat when two will provide you with twice the fun? Double the love, double the laughs, and double the kitty cuddles sounds pretty great, right? Bonded pair Harold and Kumar are adorable, friendly, and very special boys! Eight-year-old Harold is crazy about people. He especially loves lap time! This sweet boy will immediately climb into your lap and melt all your cares away. He’s also quite active and loves to play. He loves his toys so much that he often plays with multiple toys at once! Toy mouse in one paw, feather string in the other! You’ll also notice that Harold is missing most of his left ear. This trooper doesn’t let that bother him one bit! Harold’s sharp as a tack and misses nothing!  He is just as sweet and playful as any other kitty! He wears his special ear like a fashion statement; It gives him that much more character. His best buddy Kumar is a four-year-old orange sweetheart! Kumar is a bit shyer than Harold and prefers to spend his time relaxing or napping in his favorite spots. These two BFF’s can even be spotted spooning with each other when it’s nap time. It’s adorable!!

These handsome buddies need a home together. Do you have room in your heart for these dapper dudes? Best pals Harold and Kumar would probably do best in a home with a patient owner who will give Kumar time to come out of his shell and become comfortable with his environment.  He will surely blossom when given the chance!  Harold can sometimes get overstimulated when you give him affection for long periods of time.   He is such a gentleman and will politely let you know when he’s had enough petting for the time being.  He would love to have someone who will be able to recognize when Harold is ready for some alone time.  Usually when Harold has had enough affection, he’s ready to expel some energy and play! These handsome guys recently spent some time in a foster home where their foster mom absolutely loved having them! She reported that “Harold is the kitty in charge in this pair and was extremely curious as soon as he arrived. He loves being near you and is very food motivated. Kumar gets a lot of confidence from Harold and was very shy his first few days. The best way to get Kumar to come over is to play with Harold.” Kumar's companion, Harold, is FIV+, which means they should either be the only kitties in the home or live with other FIV+ kitties. None of this stops these two boys, they are cute as buttons and so much love to give to the right family! We know you’ll fall in love with them immediately as it's truly hard to resist these two! Harold would love to show off his play skills and Kumar will gladly show you his comfy nap spots. These two kitties are definitely better than one and they would love it if you invited them into your heart—and home!
